Reading Unit Day 4

20 May

Today was a simple day for the students.

They turned over their verb worksheet and made a T-Chart.  The headings were Cognados y Conocidos (Cognates & Known words).

They filled in their T-chart while looking through the book.  Again, Student A filled out the chart from the right side, while student B filled out from the left side as they turned the pages.  They do have to wait for a bit occasionally but cannot simply allow one to do the work.

Next the students read the book with their partner for the first time.  They actually read the book three times.

  •  First time:  Read through taking turns without stopping to decide what the words meant or looking anything up.  It is important that they read aloud so they do not skim, but read & hear every word.
  • Second time:  Read through and discuss what you think is going on for each page (still not looking anything up).
  • Third time: read & look up any words that you absolutely need to know for context.

Then they got out their notebooks to do some writing.  I showed them the following poster:

stickies

I made sure they understood the words.  I used an example from an unread Clifford book to write examples of each on the yellow sticky notes.

They found one example of each and wrote it in their notebook.  Tomorrow they will write them on sticky notes and compare their book to other student’s Clifford books.

Let me know what you think!

Gracias, Penny
